ASG Security daytime team scoops award

November 7, 2022


The ASG Security team at St John’s Shopping Centre in Leeds has scooped up the BACIL Awards (Business Against Crime In Leeds) for Best Daytime Security Team.

ASG, based in Leyland, Lancashire, provide quality security and commercial cleaning services to commercial and public sector organisations across the UK.

The business is renowned for its careful management and development of people and a personal, focused approach with client partners, which has nurtured an innate efficiency within ASG.

Consistently going above and beyond client expectations and embracing innovative technology to improve efficiency and minimise environmental impact has helped ASG provide the highest levels of service across the UK.

This high level of service and dedication was recently recognised at the prestigious BACIL awards.

The awards are part of the BACIL initiative which constitutes 420 members across Leeds City Centre, from both the day and night-time economy.

They work in partnership with Leeds City Council, West Yorkshire Police, Safer Leeds, and other bodies across the city to actively reduce crime and antisocial behaviour.

Working together and sharing information has significantly reduced crime, creating a safer city centre for businesses and the general public.

The awards recognise the businesses and institutions that go above and beyond to keep the city centre a safer place to live, work, and play.


The St. Johns Centre team had some stiff competition from across the city with major high-street brands and groups nominated and in the running for the Best Daytime Security Team.

The win is a terrific accolade for the ASG team and is a fantastic acknowledgement of their professionalism and dedication to the security of the centre and surrounding area, and the important role this plays within Leeds city centre.

Steve Burns, ASG Site Manager is incredibly proud of the award win and the recognition it gives the team, commenting, “This is an amazing achievement for our team, and I believe it to be very well deserved, the team are diligent and always willing to go the extra mile. I think they are the best in Leeds and now it’s official.”

Simon Hawkins, ASG Operations Director, added his voice to praise the team’s tremendous win, “I couldn’t be happier for Steve and the team at St. Johns, they exemplify the commitment ASG encourages and nurtures across our security and cleaning teams.

“This award acknowledges a job well done by all concerned, day in and day out. Well done you’re a real credit to ASG.”
